Q – What is KidzCanCode and why did you setup learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – We are a start-up based in Melbourne, Australia and run a few kids code clubs there. We realized that we would need development tracks and tutorials to support the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning programs our kids focus on. KidzCanCode and learning.kidzcancode.com specifically was setup to host each of the development tracks (coding, robotics, electronics, etc.) that we would be focusing on in class.


Q – What does it cost to sign up my child to the STEM development tracks at learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – Signing up to KidzCanCode is FREE. A very large part of the development tracks covering fundamentals of coding, electronics, robotics is FREE and will remain FREE for ever. Please use the register link at learning.kidzcancode.com to sign-up at KidzCanCode.


Q – How do I sign up my child to the STEM development tracks at learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – Use the register link at learning.kidzcancode.com to sign-up for access to the various STEM development tracks hosted at KidzCanCode. Registration is FREE. Once you’ve signed up you to the KidzCanCode Learning Management System (LMS) you should have access to each of the development tracks including tutorials part of the development track. As you progress through the tutorials you will be able to mark each of them complete and hence track your progress through the development track.


Q – There are so many different STEM development tracks at learning.kidzcancode.com, which ones should i be getting my child to start with?

A – The answer really depends on where you child is with their learning journey. If you child is 6-7 and just starting out we would recommend –

  1. Kick off with ScratchJr
  2. Explore coding and making with Scratch
  3. Explore coding and making BBC micro:bit

If your child is between 9-12 we would recommend  you starting off with the following

  1. Explore coding and making with Scratch
  2. Explore coding and making BBC micro:bit
  3. Explore electronics with the BBC micro:bit
  4. Explore robotics with the BBC micro:bit

If your child is between 13-17 we would recommend  you starting off with the following

  1. Explore electronics with the BBC micro:bit
  2. Explore electronics with the Arduino and Raspberry Pi
  3. Explore coding with Python, Micropython on the micro:bit
  4. Explore IoT with micro:bit, ESP32 and ESP8266
  5. Explore robotics with the BBC micro:bit, Arduino and Raspberry Pi

There’s no simple or straightforward answer, we work with kids and parents on evolving a suitable learning path. You’ll need to do the same.


Q – Are you able to help us chart a suitable learning path for our child

A – Charting a learning path and getting your child started with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning journey can be confusing for various different reasons. The number of development tracks combined with the background knowledge required to get started with each can be seriously daunting.

We can’t promise that we’ll have all the answers but if you drop us an email at kidzcancode@hack2.live with the following details we will be able to provide guidance on the nature of development tracks you might consider starting with. –

  1. Your child’s age
  2. Your child’s interests i.e. coding, electronics, robotics, etc.
  3. Details of any prior experience you child has with coding, electronics, game design, robotics, etc
  4. Any preferences you or your child has with regards to the development tracks they might want to take up.

We will get in touch over email, confirm the nature of development tracks most suitable to your child and provide guidance.


Q – Who should consider signing up to learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – KidzCanCode was initially setup to support parents who are keen to get their kids started with their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) learning journey. However the development tracks offered at learning.kidzcancode.com are suitable to kids of all ages (9-99) who are interested in exploring coding, game design, robotics, electronics, etc.


Q – I am a teacher/instructor/facilitator interested in setting up a codeclub/electronics club/robotics club at my school/library/commercial establishment. How do i go about getting access to the development tracks at KidzCanCode ?

A – The development tracks at KidzCanCode were created to enable delivery of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) to kids from 7 – 17. The development tracks at KidzCanCode cover a wide variety of coding, electronics, making and robotics tracks. Non commercial groups have free access to all of the content i.e. including the custom content we’ve created. If you are considering use of the development tracks here at KidzCanCode for your commercial offerings, please reach out to us at kidzcancode@hack2.live.


Q – What does STEAM stand for ?

A – STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. All the courses at learning.kidzcancode.com focus on STEAM related subjects.


Q – What is the nature of development tracks being offered at learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – At learning.kidzcancode.com you can find a host of free development tracks focused around Scratch, BBC micro:bit, paper circuits, fundamentals of electronics, python development, web development, robotics, etc. Over the coming months we will also provide access to commercial courses. Once we have worked together and crafted a suitable STEAM learning journey for your child we will assign relevant development tracks to your account.


Q – What are the commercial development tracks being offered at learning.kidzcancode.com ?

A – We are considering putting together commercial development tracks with a focus on electronics, robotics, python development, etc. Drop us an email at kidzcancode@hack2.live for additional details.
